Moving with termites

Expanded Question:

We are currently in the process of buying a house. We have rented a house for 3 years, and now discovered it has termites. I have no idea how long this problem has been there. So what do I need to do to make sure we dont move them with us?

Answer:

Moving with termites is a virtual impossibility as regards the in ground specie, unless you carry lumber that is sufficiently infested, and wrap the timber in moist fabric to retain the required moisture, this cannot happen.

Not knowing in what region of the Country you reside, I don't know if your area experiences drywood, dampwood, or formosan termites, which could be, in some instances, transported.

If this response is not sufficient, please let me know the location of your present residence and where you will be moving.
